Elementary Schools to Use Standards-Based Report Cards

Progress reports changing
Posted on 10/22/2014

Parents and guardians of elementary school students will see a change in how student progress is reported this year.

Three years ago, Idaho set new core standards for students. These standards clearly identify what students should know and do at each grade level in math and reading/language arts.  

This year, report cards will change to tell you how your child is doing meeting those standards. Sample report cards and answers to frequently asked questions are available under Parents / Students on our website.

The first standards-based report cards will be issued in November, but parents will see a change in how progress is reported in PowerSchool when checking grades online.

Standards-based report cards have been used in kindergarten for several years and elementary schools in the district have been piloting standards-based report cards in grades 1-4 and now it will be in place in every elementary school.

If you have questions, please talk with your child's teacher or principal.
